Cross Country Delivers Before Homecoming

By Sara Littlejohn
Homecoming was not the only exciting event last Saturday. Our Cross Country team traveled to Gibson Ranch Park in Elverta to participate in the Flat Sac Invitational. The varsity boys placed 3rd out of 30 teams, with outstanding performances by Nevin Afong ‘19, Enrique Vershadoor ‘19, and Isaiah Jimenez ’19. The boys dominated the top 15 out of 217 runners. Afong took 5th, Vershadoor placed 12th and Jiminez secured 13th to help contribute to a 3rd place overall.
The varsity girls also had an stellar race, placing 9th out of 18 teams. Top runners for Christian Brothers include none other than Malia Gay ‘21, Alieen Fortin ‘19, and Rain Cheng ‘21. Gay took 37th place, Fortin 56th and Cheng 66th out of 161 girls racing. These top performances rounded out our Lady Falcons and help them place 9th overall.

Our varsity runners weren’t the only racers this weekend. Our freshmen and sophomore  boys team took 1st place out of 16 teams. Top runs by Ryan Dong ‘22, Jack Stokes ‘21, and Jacob Schnetz ‘21 helped the boys secure the dub. Ryan placed 4th, Jack 18th and Jacob 23rd to help lead the boys to a first place victory. Lets wish them luck in their next race! Bleed blue!
